Alvaro Morata marked his return to the Chelsea starting eleven and scored the opening goal against Brighton, via a familiar source – Cesar azpilicueta.
The Spaniard headed in Azpilicueta’s cross in the 46th minute to put Chelsea in front. This is now the sixth time this season that Morata has been assisted by Azpilicueta.
Conte has told Morata to buy dinner for Azpilicueta for his assists.
“Azpi has to score also, not only assist,” he said. “Azpi is a defender with good feet and there is this great link between him and Alvaro, it’s not the first time, I hope they continue in this way.
“Morata has to pay for not just one dinner but more for Azpi, if they invite me I want to go with them.”
